After further review...
Monday, September 11, 2006
For you non football fans that's what the referee usually says after an instant replay challenge. Anyway, there was one issue (and pretty minor at that) on our dossier. We just need to get a few pages which had been notarized get a restamp. On just a couple of pages there wasn't the official notary stamp on each page but rather on the final page of the document (which is the normal practice here in the U.S.).

Thankfully (course that's what they get the big bucks for) our agency caught it during their review of our documents. They also explained the reason why and that is that the Russians don't "trust" the document unless the notary seal is on every page (or at least the folks in our region since policies are not exactly uniform in good ol' Mother Russia).

So we'll be getting the documents needing the corrections Fedex'd to us tomorrow and we'll clear this up this week and should be able to get them back to our agency by week's end.

As Stef mentioned in last week's post, I had one nasty cold. I'm just getting back up to speed after that bout which was the second cold I've had in the past 2 months (which also happens to be the second cold I've had in like the last 5 years). I guess I just needed to catch up on not feeling well. Unfortunately this time I got a little bronchitis with it, which is just a real pain to get rid of. But for the moment, I live. And will thankfully be able to watch my beloved 49ers this NFL season.

    Stefanie & Steve
    First of all I am glad you are better Steve. Bronchitis can be so bad and it takes a longggg time to get rid of.
    Thank goodness your agency found the small error and you can get it fixed(notarized)quickly. Does that mean you will have to get those pages apostilled again also?
    Everyone likes to have their own rules!!!
    Does your company have their NGO yet?
    Congratulations on getting this far so fast and good luck on the rest.
